In 2007, the Australian Perth Mint introduced a series of coins called the Silver Koala series, offered in both gold and silver options. In the years that have since followed, a fresh design of the iconic koala was released. The adorable tree-climbing koala is one of the most iconic animals in the world, easily recognizable as one that belongs to Australia. The Australian Silver Koala series coins are offered in both a 1 oz and a 1-kilogram size. The mintage of the 1 oz coins is capped at 300,000 coins, which makes them highly collectible for those who seek out these beautifully designed coins. The 2017 design celebrates 10 years of the Australian Silver Koala series.
Who doesnt recognize the koala and the kangaroo as two of the most prominent symbols of Australia? When the koala was first encountered by the earliest settlers in Australia, they were of the belief that these cute tree-climbing animals were small bears or even monkeys. Even though the koala is a marsupial, much like the kangaroo and wombat, many do still refer to this little tree-climber as a koala bear.
The obverse of the 2017 Kangaroo Privy Silver Koala coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait was completed by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and is just the latest of images of Her Majesty used upon Australian coins. The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II has been featured on Australian coins since 1952.
The reverse of the Kangaroo Privy Silver Koala coin features the charming Koala design, with the distinguished Kangaroo privy mark displayed prominently on the left of the design, just slightly above the koala. The design depicts an adult koala seated at the base of a towering eucalyptus tree. The eucalyptus tree is the primary food source for the koala. Also included on the reverse design is the mintage year, the coin weight and the Perth Mint P mintmark.
The iconic koala and kangaroo are synonymous with their home country of Australia. They are perhaps two of the easily recognizable marsupials across the globe and come together on the 2017 Kangaroo Privy Silver Koala coin.
